Summary0000195: Setting WEATHER:NO just keeps rain from stopping, not starting
DescriptionI set weather to "No" in init.txt during a rainstorm, and reloaded the game. It has now been raining for two years. Is this a feature? Is this switch simply supposed to stop the weather from changing?
Steps To ReproduceWait until it rains. Save/Exit and set Weather to "NO" in init.txt. Reload game.

This is an old issue. Turning off weather while it is raining causes it to rain forever.

I think this can be fixed by turning weather back on, waiting until the rain stops, and then turning weather off again.

Well, now that there is a bug tracker it will get resolved as either a bug or a feature...

Old issue or not, still sounds like a bug to me.

I did a forum search first and saw some people with the same issue as me.

I wait until it stops raining, save and quit DF, change weather to NO and then reload DF. After some play time, it starts raining again and never stops.

I've tried turning weather back to ON and waiting for the rain to stop 4 or 5 times. No matter when I turn weather off, it always starts raining again and goes indefinitely.

I can confirm, it has little to nothing to do with the weather status at the time of turning weather to 'NO'. If it wasn't raining when you did it, it will shortly thereafter begin, and it will not stop.
